Ottawa's market is punny

Ottawa's market is punny

That's... not a pun. It's a reference making use of a homonym

OTTAWA! OTTAWA!

Yeah--I came to the comments just to see what I wasn't getting.

I came to the comments just to make sure someone had already pointed this out

613 WE OUT HERE

Where are the puns?

Now everybody in the 613, put your motherfucking hands up and follow me

But he didn't go to Bel Air because he was fresh. He went because he got into one little fight and his mom got scared.

Did they sell DJ Razzy Jeffs?

That was my reaction as well bro

Same! I didn't think we'd ever make the front page of anything aside from the Citizen

I forgot all rules of the english langwij

That's the Byward Market in downtown Ottawa, where there is a bakery that's famous for their Obama cookies.

-STABBING

Nothing on Earth tastes as good as an Ontario strawberry. They've adapted and grown strong in the cold, harsh Canadian climate. It's survival of the fittest for fruits.

Too bad they are only in season for a month, and they aren't often shipped outside of Ontario.

I'm hungry.

99 Rideau is just a block away!

/sub/ottawa is leaking

/sub/ottawa is going to go nuts when they see this.

/sub/fellowkids

*landwich

CANADA!

I'm as excited as the next Ottawan to see us on the front page for something not Rideau McDonald's-related, but I gotta say, this hardly feels like front page material. Hell, I don't think this would have made it to the top of /sub/ottawa. Reddit is weird sometimes.

Sandwiches are made of sand, landwiches are made of land. Makes sense

WE TSTORMING UP IN THIS BITCH. TORNADO LIFE

Let this be the 2nd best thing to ever happy to our city

Was there last summer, they still had the news footage of Obama coming to the shop and a section dedicated to him

But the strawberries are in a punnet

I think his point was that it's more of a humorous reference than a pun. It specifically references the show 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' It doesn't necessarily use the other meaning of fresh so still not really a pun.

Oh, they totally are, but there's something so Canadian about worshipping Obama with cookies that idec

Surely someone from Glebe down voted this.

They've moved on from that I'm pretty sure. They replaced them with plane ol maple leaf shaped ones.

Toronto for the better job market, obviously.

The strawberries at this stall are actually pretty good, I have had them

Yeah I live there. The Obama cookies lost their charm a few months after the visit happened, now I feel like they're extra tacky.

Are you the b'y who builds the boat?

i am from newfoundland

In Canada we put up unpunny signs just so we can apologize right to your face.

In early spring, our days are still quite short. Our strawberry shrubs don't have much vegetative growth. They stretch a bit for sunlight and get a little lanky but otherwise, the vegetation remains fresh vigorous. When summer hits, we get over 16 hours of daylight at our peak, delivering bountiful sun to our little baby plants. This grows large fruits with solid starches. Because of the cold nights late in the season, the plant believes the end is near and starts metabolizing those starches into sugars in order to attract a pollinator so the plant can sex. This ripens the fruit perfectly.

Well if anything id say that his cab was rare

What is surf n turf? Is it sea water and astro-turf?

Is a pun not a joke making use of the similarity between, or the multiple definitions of, words?

I thought it was cause he saw some dice in the mirror...

Where are you taking us?

What you're not getting is the definition of a pun.

Pun

a joke exploiting the different possible meanings of a word or the fact that there are words that sound alike but have different meanings.

Pun: "a joke exploiting the different possible meanings of a word or the fact that there are words which sound alike but have different meanings." Fresh as in fresh produce and fresh as in hip and cool.

It's not really a homonym, it's just a play on the slang usage of a word.

Holy shit Ottawa is on the front page

gang gang

No because a homonym implies the word has a different origin with the same spelling. "Fresh" as a slang word means roughly the same thing as the non-slang word because it is essentially the same word. It's like saying that "Socialism" as known by Americans is a homonym of "Socialism" as known by other countries. The meaning is slightly different based on how it has evolved and been used differently but it's the same word. Not a homonym.

It's Ottawa's answer to Hell In The Cell!

Different origins. That's super important. They're the same word used differently. They're not homonyms.

Probablythe b'y that sails 'er.

First things first, rest in peace Uncle Phil

Go Sens!

Yeah! Now with more humidity!

It's a wonderful town!

He's right. This post is neither complaining about Jim Watson, nor is it talking about cheap places to take a date.

no puns just punnets

KANATA REPRESENT

Similarities, yes. Homonyms are the same word being used for two definitions. A joke that uses homonyms is not a pun.

The first being Obama buying cookies? ♡

Or the b'y that catches the fish

Nothing on Earth tastes as good as an Ontario strawberry. They've adapted and grown strong in the cold, harsh Canadian climate. It's survival of the fittest for fruits.

Not doubting this particular fruit, but "adapted to the strong harsh cold" doesn't really correlate with being a tasty fruit. If anything, it's the exact opposite.

It could be the Colonel By people.

Oh, good point.

we apologize for these thugs

I. pulled. Up

You're mistaken.

Pun

I don't like sand. It's coarse, rough, and irritating. And it gets everywhere

The funniest was the dude who wanted to take his girl to see the northern lights. Bitch, that shit don't happen much around here.

And brings them home to Liza?

To the house around 7 or 8 when I was pulled out of my car and beaten by the police because 'brothers' don't belong in this part of town and then I went back to philly where I became a drug dealer.

But I thought "Nah forget it, yo holmes to Bel-Air!"
